The Bughouse by Daniel Swift book cover

Old Master, Old Monster: The Bughouse by Daniel Swift

'The trouble is that The Bughouse is constantly outgrowing its own status as a work of interpretation without quite turning into the thing it might be – a biography which is also a work of intrinsic literary quality. What we tend to get is a kind of travelogue and personal journey into the environs of Pound’s incarceration.'
